Imagine. Create. Enjoy.

Hello Folks,

Today’s post is about digging in your stash and using your stuff! (Or cleaning your studio so you can find some buried treasures! Ha!)

I was cleaning up my studio this week and found this amazing set of cards from Paper Source.

I decided to make a card that I can send to someone in the mail, as mail art is one of my favorite things on the planet! What better way to use my stuff, wouldn’t you agree?

The “Radiant” stencil from Artistcellar’s Diamond Series is just the right size for my project.

I love that I can see through the stencil to help me with placement on the card.

I used some acrylic paint and a cosmetic wedge to apply paint through the stencil openings.

Next, I got out the amazing set of alphabet stamps by Traci Bunkers and a StazOn ink pad.

I fooled around, made a simple mistake, had some fun, and finished my card.

I am in love with how it all came together, mistake and all!

I hope this post inspires you to dig around and use your stuff, too! Oh, and it’s okay to make mistakes!

Sending Blessings,

Briana of
